    I bought this Sunlite kickstand for my motorized bike...the first day i put it on it worked great..i was like wow.

    It only worked for 1 bike has fallen down 20 times because of this thing. It STINKS ON ICE!!

    anyone else have it? maybe the spring needs to be upgraded? why would it work for 1 day and then never work again?

    I had a kickstand similar to Rockjaw's on my China girl bike and it worked well. Maybe he just got a lemon.

    I have the same one, it works ok as long as you don't try to start the motor with it on the stand. I had to bend one leg back after I did that a few times. doublecenterstand.jpg

    Are you sure its the kickstand that stinks on ice? Or is it your full pants when you soil yourself after almost slipping over?

    I had one. Or it looked just like it, anyway.

    My problem was that it was just a bit too short. The feet were just a hair above ground level, allowing the bike to tip.

    I was really annoyed with the maker over that. They should have made it a bit longer. It wouldn't have taken much at all to be useful on any 26 in bike.
